Beyoncé is being criticized for her late endorsement for Democratic Senate candidate, Beto O’Rourke.
Via Page Six:
The Houston-born songstress urged her fans to get out and vote for O’Rourke, posting photos on Instagram of herself dressed in all black and wearing a matching “Beto for Senate” cap.
“We can’t voice our frustrations and complain about what’s wrong without voting and exercising our power to make it right,” she wrote to her 119 million followers. “We need you.”
But many were quick to point out that the pop queen’s effort was too little, too late.

I’m feeling grateful for everyone before me who fought so hard to give us all the right to have a voice. We can’t voice our frustrations and complain about what’s wrong without voting and exercising our power to make it right. We need you. We all need each other, because when we are truly united we are unstoppable. Sending you all love and positivity on this happy voting day! Every vote counts Every race matters Everywhere.
Beyoncé did post the pictures late in the afternoon of voting day. Take a look at some tweets fans said blaming Beyoncé for Beto’s loss.

Really appreciate Beyonce endorsing Beto O’Rourke… BUT wouldn’t this have been much more powerful at this time yesterday? She usually nails her surprise announcements, too.

Personally, I blame Beyoncé. Sis didn’t reveal her endorsement of Beto until the day of the election. Like sis… REALLY SIS pic.twitter.com/6yjlLFyILq
